A Kentucky man was arrested and is facing charges after his landlord discovered a horribly neglected German shepherd inside. As reported by WATE News, the dog was inside of a residence where 34-year-old Joshua Shane Blevins was being evicted from.

On Sunday, the Bell County’s Sheriff’s Department was called out to the home on Rae May Road – deputies found a severely malnourished, mange-ridden dog barricaded by furniture in the living room area. A deputy noted that the floor was covered in urine and feces, and stated that the dog had no way to get away from the filth.

Blevins arrived home while the deputies were at the residence and he was arrested on a charge of torture of dog/cat with serious physical injury or death. He was booked into the Bell County Detention Center. The dog was in such horrible condition that the decision was made to put him down.
